The lovely folks at Dayspring have sent me a back-to-school assortment of their products for review. Several different designs are available, but the set they sent me will be perfect for Munchkin to use this fall. Homeschoolers use plenty of notebooks, folders and three-ring binders! The set I received included two of each.
The notebooks have a sturdy plastic spiral binding, which is nice because it doesn’t tend to get bent up like metal bindings do. The eighty-page notebooks are wide-ruled with micro-perforated edges. I personally prefer college-ruled paper, but at my daughter’s age, wide ruled is fine. My only suggestion would be for Dayspring to make a college-ruled option available.
The folders are your typical folders (but pretty!) and are nice quality. They are a little tall for the three-ring binders, but fit perfectly in the zippered binders that have replaced the “trapper keepers” that we used back when I was in school.
The three-ring binders are 1 ½ inches thick, making them a good size to handle plenty of filler paper and notes. The binder rings seem to be of good quality, and will probably hold up as well as any typical binder does. The inside of the binders I received is black, which goes nicely with the designs on both binders. There is an inside pocket on both the front and back covers.
The products all seem to be well-made, and I love the designs on them! It’s nice to have a better option than some of the less-appropriate characters and themes we find on back-to-school supplies in the stores. My daughter is six and a half and when we opened the box she was thrilled. (Of course, what little girl doesn’t like hearts and hot pink?) Dayspring also offers several other designs that would be appreciated by boys and girls alike. They are reasonably priced, and I may even order a few binders for myself!
